Why did McInnis wait until it was too late? Why didn't he release the emails that allegedly instructed Rolly Fischer not to plagiarize? That's the question everyone's been asking, and Rick Wagner didn't ask it.
Why did McInnis run $112,500 of his $300,000 payment from the Hasan Family Foundation through a company called "Scott McInnis Invest 2 LLC," which lists Lori McInnis, Scott's wife, as the registered agent?
The plagiarized articles appear to constitute a breach of his contract, and breach-of-contract is a common type of fraud. Even if the work was being done for a foundation, it was a business transaction.
Among the unwritten articles out there, perhaps one of the biggest is the story of McInnis's research assistant, Rolly Fischer, whom the candidate is blaming for the plagiarism in those once-elusive water articles.
The simple reason for McInnis' apparent refusal to produce his water opus might be the fact that these issues are so mind-bogglingly sensitive that he feels he has nothing to gain politically by exposing more of his thinking on the topic.
